Strawberries and...

You just can't beat your own grown strawberries. Maybe it's that fact that they grew in you own garden that seems to make them taste so exquisite Cheesy
Last year SWMBO planted just a small plot of them and they were almost all devoured by the birds Sad
This year she planted several plots and managed to keep the birds away. Luvly jubbly Cool
I like mine with lashings of double cream. How do you like yours?

Re: Strawberries and...

Picked carefully, remove the green leaves, wash gently, then put in the fridge for at least 4 hours....
No cream, just a bowl of sugar to dip them in. Now that is exquisite..... Tongue

Edit.... oh, I forgot,.... definitely NO Tennis....  Cheesy

Re: Strawberries and...

How strange - my dad used to like his strawberries with just sugar sprinkled over them.
Too naked for me - I like cream on my cold desserts. A dollop of vanilla ice cream as well sometimes.
SWMBO does put them straight into fridge after washing, etc.
The worst strawberries... tinned or frozen.
As much as I love strawberries I can't stand strawberry juice drinks.

With ice cream (Cornish for preference; tried them with chocolate ice cream last year - didn't really work).

Re: Strawberries and...

I don't like strawberries though I like strawberry jam and other strawberry flavoured things.
My dad says a tiny sprinkle of black pepper brings out the flavour of strawberries.

Re: Strawberries and...

According to SWMBO there'll be some more in a few days. I'm going to give the black pepper a try Smiley

When I was younger I didn't like strawberries or strawberry jam because of the 'bits' in them Cheesy
